It's the first day of the annual festive Outside Xbox contest, in which we draw daily random game challenges in the run-up to Christmas 2017. Join us as the competition heats up like a panful of mulled wine, with the help of Outside Xtra elves Luke and Ellen. Mike has first pick and draws Fallout 4, in which he must punch the Brotherhood of Steel's Elder Maxson in the face aboard floating fortress the Prydwyn, then escape with his life. Also, he must be nude.
If you enjoyed Fallout 4, Skyrim and Doom, but thought they'd be better if the main character was a tiny stainless steel ball, then good news: there's a Bethesda table pack available for Pinball FX2. Watch as Mike and I test out what are surely the most complicated pinball tables in history in this Xbox One gameplay.
In the real world, the only time travel we're allowed is forward, at a rate of one hour per hour. But seeing what game characters do to make time pass more quickly, maybe it's just as well. Consider these ways to make time go faster in The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid 5, Deadly Premonition and the rest.
Fallout 4's new Nuka World DLC takes you to the happiest place in the irradiated, post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland: Nuka-World! The exclamation point is mandatory, we're told. This latest add-on gives you a whole theme park in which to run amok, going on rides, murdering raiders, lording it over your subjects as park Overboss. As Fallout 4's biggest DLC yet, it's exciting stuff.
The Fallout 4 Vault-Tec Workshop DLC lets you make a Fallout Vault to your own specifications, at last, so long as your specifications involve tormenting all your Vault dwellers in general and one Vault dweller in particular. Meet Clem!
Overcooked is a new co-operative cooking party game in which you cook food and serve it to guests in a variety of bizarre kitchens that include a frozen river with moving ice floes and a pair of trucks that move together and apart as they race down a mercifully straight highway. They still produce more appetising food than most of the stuff I've tried to cook in games, as we discover later in the show.

Fallout 4's new Far Harbor DLC sends you to the island of Far Harbor off the coast of Maine looking for a missing person.

So you've downloaded Fallout 4 story DLC Far Harbor, and you want to voyage to the largest land mass Bethesda has ever created for a game add-on to see what the fuss is about. Here's how.
Though many of the big videogame mysteries we've pondered (who is the Arkham Knight?) have been solved, countless smaller questions will forever go unanswered (why does Dr Robotnik put bunnies in robots?). Consider these mysteries that keep us awake at night.
In 1995, publisher Namco gave the world Time Crisis, Tekken 2 and a patent for a system that ran minigames in the loading screens of other games, which kept anyone else from doing that for over two decades. Consider the ways these games tried to keep you entertained during load times with things that weren't Galaxian.
Fallout 4 DLC Wasteland Workshop lets you trap animals, raiders and deathclaws in cages then make them fight for your amusement. Watch us capture bears for the Sanctuary Funderdome in this Fallout 4 Wasteland Workshop gameplay footage.
Fallout 4's new Automatron DLC sees the Commonwealth invaded by a wave of hostile robots under the control of the dastardly Mechanist, last seen battling the Antagonizer back in the Capital Wasteland of Fallout 3.

But all of that wasn't weird enough for some people, who have their own favourite mystery spots they urged us to inspect. Consider these six bizarre Fallout 4 locations as discovered by you, the intrepid Outside Xbox audience.
Fallout 4 appears to be less out-and-out weird than its predecessors, but though there's no Wild Wasteland perk a la New Vegas or kooky insect-themed supervillains a la Fallout 3, there is still unmarked weirdness for you to stumble upon in the Commonwealth. Join us now on a journey into the freakiest corners of the Commonwealth that you might have missed.
It might not reach the wacky heights of Fallouts 3 and New Vegas, but Fallout 4 still has its share of weirdness for you to discover.

There are no main story missions in the following video, but consider this your warning if you're avoiding side quest spoilers.
It's Day 10 of the Oxbox Xmas Challenge and my final task is to successfully launch a piece of junk, from a selection chosen by Jane and Mike, through a basketball hoop in Fallout 4. To complete this task I'll be using the Junk Jet, a pneumatic trash cannon that I found in an abandoned factory, just like a real basketball player.
In the spirit of the season, we attempt to brighten up the holidays for the residents of Fallout 4's Sanctuary by bringing some much-needed festive cheer to the tumbledown shanty town. Some would say that a light-up Christmas tree that requires three large generators to power is excessive in a town that doesn't even have a clean water supply, but those people are grinches, whom you must ignore.
To paraphrase Liam Neeson, I have a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a long career of acting like a complete idiot in videogames. Skills that make me perfect for an Xmas challenge that involves stripping to my underoos and punching an authority figure in the back of the head. But will I make good my escape from Diamond City? I feel like my entire time on Outside Xbox has been building up to this moment.
